Description
Want to try dyeing, but the chemistry is daunting? Heard rumors about "stinky Indigo Vats"? Horrified at the price tag on a pound of weld? Learn to dye wool with inexpensive ingredients you can find at your local grocery store (like food coloring, drink mixes, and candy). This is a fun but very messy class suitable for adults and school age children, so please wear garb you don't mind getting dye on. Attendees are recommend to bring latex gloves. Wool yarn will be provided. Class will be recorded
